2016 Field Season Day 13

It's Friday, the end of the work week! Everyone gets to sleep in tomorrow and enjoy a hotel breakfast along with a day of relaxation. Hard to believe two weeks have already passed.

Grid 51 keeps getting deeper and deeper.

The afternoons continue to be busy with pottery washing and processing, container inventory, research and writing on the Hellenistic and Roman Ashkelon volumes, zoo archaeology and botanical analysis. The registrars also spend a lot of time cataloging and recording all of our finds. While we are off this afternoon, we'll be back in the field on Sunday. Check back for regular updates.
